4 out of 5 (44 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Great Shure sound, bad quality construction."
Sound: Excellent Sound once you get them in your ears properly Feature: Ship w/ excellent accessories (case, and extra ear pieces) Ease of Use: They are difficult to wear and often can fall out of your ears Quality: They tend to break off at the earbud. I've heard of a number of other users that had the plastic crack. Seems to be a materials issue. I wouldn't buy them again because of this Value: Pretty expensive overall Manufacturer Support: Support is very good from Shure The Wow Factor: Everyone wants a pair

Thank you. Your vote has been counted. Could you briefly tell us why the review was or was not helpful?

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "The audiophile earbud."
Sound: I love the sound coming out of these headphones. I am not one of those people who will compare their $10 sony, or panasonic headphones to see which has more bass, and that is usually horrible quality bass. I instead appreciate clean, clear, detailed sound with texture. The answer to this are the shures. The shure's E3s give very pleasant deep bass notes, paired with a very detailed midrange, and highs. The sound is so good that you'll be able to notice a difference when raising the bitrate, which is not the case with cheap earphones. For cheap earbuds 96Kbps and higher sound the same, meanwhile with the shures you will be able to see a difference all the way up to 256Kbps, and maybe even higher for those with trained ears. The soundstage while small is very intense, and makes the music as if it is all around and inside your head. All in all this canalphones are excellent, and can outperform all earphones with lower prices, and at the same time even some full size headphones like the bose. RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIGH QUALITY, ACCURATE CLEAN SOUND, RATHER THAN BASS HEAVY, OR TREBLE HEAVY MUDDY SOUND. Feature: As a canalphone what it has hardly features, however it blocks out a lot of sound, indeed more than the popular BOSE, and all in a small size, smaller than most earbuds. Quality: Product made to last, with an excellent warranty. Value: Excellent sound, but if the treble was like the ety's it could be almost perfect. Manufacturer Support: Excellent customer Support. Overall: These are so great I am going to keep them until I can afford a pair of Sensaphonics, which are a little over $700 a pair. That is going to be a lvery ong time from now.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
